About this recipe: Ho ho ho! Tis the season to be jolly and so it should be with this simple, last minute, Christmas cake. For those who are a little bit behind with their Christmas organisation pop this in the oven whilst throwing up the Christmas tree...its that easy! This recipe has been handed down through the generations hence why the measurements are in old and new weights. To be honest I've only just got used to decimal currency. This recipe uses light brown sugar as opposed to dark brown sugar which you would find in a rich fruit cake recipe and there is no treacle. So, probably not one for the purists!
I had made this recipe regularly 25 years ago! ! ! I saw it on a TV show. The difference is that I always add some mixed spice, about a teaspoon full. I was really happy to find it again and so were my family - 24 Dec 2016
